Updated: The Predator Teaser Trailer Arrives Mid-April

Update 5/4/18: Shane Black has since clarified his comments. The teaser trailer will be released at Cinemacon which takes place in Las Vegas between 23-26th April. It will be shown across cinemas at some point afterwards.

The first The Predator trailer will finally be coming in a couple of weeks, according to director Shane Black. Black to Twitter to respond to some comments suggesting the secrecy surrounding the film was due to the studio forcing changes upon his cut. The director said he was just busy and that the teaser trailer will finally be released in the middle of April – it’s better to see the movie without knowing anything about it.

In addition to the trailer news, Shane also posted a new production still showing the sun rays shining through the Vancouver rainforest with the caption: “Shhhh… He’s Coming.” You can spot a little blue spark down near the shrubs. Speaking of Vancouver, the reshoots would have wrapped a few days ago.

The Predator is still scheduled to be released September 14th. Keep checking in with Alien vs. Predator Galaxy for the latest on The Predator!

    My highlight actor in moonlight was Mahershala Ali, I think he was such a believable guy as Juan, that
     part where he is teaching little to swim , really tugged on my heart in a way very few films ever do. Interestingly he was also in predators.

    Ah, that does ring a bell. I vaguely remember you reporting that here or on Twitter or something.

    If it was for the Nebraska Williams role then I'm glad they went with Trevante Rhodes. I don't dislike 50 Cent, I just think Rhodes is a great talent who needs even more recognition after Moonlight and 12 Strong.
    I never saw Moonlight, but just watched 12 Strong the other day and I was impressed with his character

    Nice, I agree his character was good in 12 Strong. Moonlight may not be everyone's cup of tea but I liked it a lot. He shows up in the later part of the film and absolutely commands the screen with his strong presence imo.

    Hollywood I agree with you on Trevante Rhodes over 50 cent , he is a talent and moonlight was a masterpiece imo. A very rare piece of cinema that doesn't come along too often. By the way I like 50 too , but he should stick to trolling Conor mcgreggor on twitter, I just think he's very wooden acting wise.

    When Shane Black tweeted:

    "You'll never see him coming"

    I'm beginning to wonder if he was talking about the bloody trailer!

    Appreciate that 'no news is good news' etc. but I'd have like to have heard more than the director, basically, telling us to hold our horses.

    To add to the above; the Halloween reboot posted a pic on Social media today. That's out in 6 months.

    Appreciate we've already had a poster release; but they look to be building some momentum in their marketing.

    I remember Tom Hardy being named the favorite to be the lead in The Predator...that never came true..lol but anyway I think Boyd is gonna knock it out of the park and I'm thinking we'll see something with Deadpool 2.... hopefully

    After seeing Boyd in Narcos and Logan, i'm fine with him.

    Not all actors weren't available though, i heard wispers that FOX and Black couldn't agree on a lead, despite Del Toro/Hardy not being available, FOX wanted younger people who can carry the franchise longer, leading to them completely recasting the movie from scratch. That's why they shifted filming from September to February and scrapping 50 Cent, for example.

    Was 50 cent officially offered a role? I  remember him talking about how he was going to do it but no official word got out about that. It wouldn't surprise me if he auditioned and boasted about how he'd be in the movie before actually getting offered a role.
    Fred told me he was being considered, probably for the Nebraska Williams role

    When they first announced that it will be Shane Black who will be directing this movie, at first I was very glad for it, really. But, by the time, I was not expecting that this will have such a strange production full of weird decisions etc. Production of this movie should be much better. . no doubt, Im sad that this is happening with Predator.
  10. Petr Švancara
    3 months and 3 weeks until the global Cinema release and there is still no public trailer, no marketing, no hype. . silly, how there can be any hype when there is a zero effort behind it. I believe that people responsible for this movie must be a bunch of amateurs, without any excuse. I dont understand why they showing the trailer at first behind the close doors, they dont believe into their own product or what? It should be already everywhere, on Youtube, on movie websites etc. Im super tired from all that waiting, maybe it will be much better if there wouldnt be so many negative things around this film, but still. . the politics behind this is just hilarious. Thats why I smell disaster all the time.

    It's so interesting this site , I knew about del toro and 50 cent , del toro would of been cool , but 50 ? Yeah they dodged a bullet , he's terrible at acting imo. 😂

    I wasn't aware that tom hardy was approached, I would love to see a revenant/predator hybrid , I think it could work really well , especially the opening attack scene , Yano the long drawn out set piece at the beginning , how cool would it be if it was predators instead of native Americans ? I dunno I just remember watching it , and thinking this would be perfect for predator.  ;D

    Del Toro would have been cool, but it would be hard for me to see him as Rory's dad
    Boyd was great in Narcos and Logan for sure
    I'm really hoping they can make a few more sequels off of this next movie

    Count me in the "later" rather than "sooner" group. We've still got a ways to go before the movie comes out. I'm gonna play it safe and say June before a mass available trailer is released. I'd be plenty happy to be wrong, but there's already been delays and now the big reshoot. How much faith they have in this film's ability to earn big at this point I don't know. But I wonder if that will effect the aggressiveness behind the marketing. They need to get after it though, there's still a lot of big movies coming out. Infinity War, Jurassic World 2, and now there's Meg.
    June is really, really late. I expect something around Ininity War which ties in nicely with the 26th showing, and it likely is linked to the Deadpool trailer. Not holding any breath though.
  16. ELDERCLANLEADER
    @ Stealth hunter .. true that infinity war is getting all the attention , but to be fair it's not like it hasn't earned it , this film will be a game changer for superhero films for years to come.

     No doubt , this will huge. I mean to get to this point it's been ten years , and they have somehow managed to minimise any plot holes and tie all the films together in a coherent fashion ,  it's quite impressive.

     I don't think deadpool 2 will be as successful as the first at least critically , box office figures are another ball game.

     I still have this sneaky feeling venom will be the highlight film that takes us all by surprise. After all this is tom hardy , and he is currently the best actor in my opinion my country has to offer. I won't write anything off he's involved in. In fact I think tom hardy would do well in a predator film in the future, he certainly can pull off the macho look when he wants to... who knows what the future may bring , but I could definitely see tom hardy being part of alien or predator one day.

    I can see them releasing the trailer later when you put it that way. My hangup about them waiting until June is it might miss an opportunity too good to pass up with Deadpool coming in May, though. Lots of people will see Deadpool despite 'Infinity War being almost right before it. If they wait until later hopefully they do an all out marketing blitz.

    deadpool 2 is tracking lower than the first with how much its expected to make at the box office but that's no surprise. they might be damned if they do release it before and damned if they release it in june. too close to avengers and people barely notice it since avengers has insane attention and too late in June they limitt there time for marketing. Dropping With deadpool might find a happy medium.

    Holy Moses, they should be giving you stock options.  :D It's probably just the area I live in. Don't get me wrong, I love the cinema, but I'm a "wait til it's out on Blu-ray" sort of guy. In my family, going to see movies is not something one does alone, nor do you want to given the location of the theater. So, it definitely isn't cheap. And I can't justify having 60 bucks invested in a movie by the time I pick it up on Blu-ray. So I try and reserve the theater for grand spectacle, with good writing of course. A difficult combination to find in the cinematic haystack of today. And besides, I got the best seat in the house at home, with full climate control, a private restroom, and a refrigerator. Oh, and repeat viewings are free.  ;D

    That makes sense! I only go to movies with my girlfriend but if I had kids I might see only 3 a year lol as much as I love movies, I rarely ever buy blu rays for some reason. My collection is relatively small.
  19. ELDERCLANLEADER
    Huggs I'm exactly the same , I rarely go to the movies anymore , to many disappointments and my wage just cannot justify it especially when I know I'll get it on DVD anyway. I used to love the cinema when I was younger , but now it's reserved for something I'm actually exited about.

    I think the last film I watched in the cinema was Dunkirk , I knew I was investing in a quality product. I do wish I watched IT in the cinema however as it was my favourite film of the year, and totally took me by surprise. I'll be watching three films in the cinema this year however,  Deadpool 2 , Venom and of course The Predator.  ;D
  20. Huggs
    They probably will. The thing is, I don't personally know anyone who goes and sees more than 1 or 2 movies in theaters per year. I myself only see one a year, and last year I didn't go at all.  Granted, the general public probably isn't following the production of this movie, but there are a lot of big pg-13 and kid films coming out that they do know about, and people are making plans. I've got a cousin who says he's only going to see the Incredibles sequel, and that's it for the year. If they're going to market this movie, they need to get the ball rolling. Gracious, Venom comes out just 2 or 3 weeks after it. And we've already seen a teaser for that.

    That's a statistic I'd be curious to find out. In my head I assume casual moviegoers see between 6 to 9 movies a year but I'm basing that off me seeing about 12 lol so i have no idea.

    What would be the point in Fox trying to delete a bootleg trailer from a movie that is due for release in 5 months?... The movie needs as much marketing as possible at this point.

    Yeah they'd be smarter to just drop it officially if that were the case. Personally, I think we will get the trailer officially before Deadpool 2 is in theaters but that's just a guess.


    playing devils advocate what if they want to wait until after avengers infinity War comes out and has a couple of weeks to die down in hype..? would that be smart or stupid considering the amount of time marketing would have?

    *I mean more than a few weeks after*
  26. ELDERCLANLEADER
    It's sort of like being a kid and waiting on that must have toy on Christmas Eve , imagining what it will be like when you open your present lol 😂

    Despite my expectations, I have to admit I'm starting to get a little excited for next week. I just hope they don't spoil the film and show everything in the trailer , if there is no sign of predator , I will take that as a very positive sign indeed.

    I want to go in , not knowing what the predators will look like, anyone else feel the same way ?
  27. Stealth_Hunter
    I remember when that happened. the trailer was officially released like 2 days after it leaked. People went mad for that bootleg.

    A description is all I need to be happy when cinemacon gets here....but the trailer better quickly follow!  ;)
  28. dallevalle
    I expect it to be out on the 26th since else they will just have bootlegs.

    I dunno how likely people at Cinemacon are to bootleg a trailer... Maybe if it was for a bigger franchise...

    We may get a description at least, I expect the trailer to hit theatres with Deadpool 2 and be online either the same day or the following Monday of that release

    I think you're right about the chances of a bootleg being recorded. If it does, though, I hope fox just releases it instead of trying to delete it everywhere.

    that's what happend with suicide squad movie ( they released a teaser at comic con) but it got recorded and the studio said f**k it and released it to everyone online.

    Guys, please...

    We have a specific date when the trailer will first be revealed, yet, people still asking on a daily basis "is it here yet? Why not?"

    Because we don't have the 26th of April 2018, that's why.
